One thing I don't understand is, why can't these networks be free with ads?

For decades broadcast TV was free, and made insane amounts of money with ads. What has changed?
They still are free with ads. I have no problem pulling in CBS through my digital antenna.

But if you want to watch older content, new content they're making specifically for their subscription service, or content on your schedule and not the network's, then they'll ask you to pay for it.

A capitalistic desire for more money. Duh.

Because business believes if your profits do not grow every quarter then you’re dying. Gotta squeeze more blood from that turnip.

GREED!
Wanting to keep more of your money for content you create instead of sharing it is greed?

In case you hadn't noticed, more and more people are cutting the cord.

https://techcrunch.com/2020/09/21/pandemic-accelerated-cord-cutting-making-2020-the-worst-ever-year-for-pay-tv/

https://www.forbes.com/sites/dbloom/2021/01/12/cord-cutting-to-accelerate-in-2021-with-27-percent-of-cable-households-disconnecting/?sh=17c930303a6e

It's a trend that sees no sign of ending any time soon.

In order to reach those viewers, content creators are creating their own service at a much lower price than what you'd pay for cable tv. They wouldn't bother if people didn't actually want and pay for these subscription services.

You get to turn on and off the subscription whenever you please, and you can watch what you want, when you want. Seems like a win to me.




People are willing to pay for a streaming service WiTH ADS. When people stop forking over $$$ for ADS the model will change.
That's probably not going to happen any time soon.

Can you only access them through Amazon or will you be able to create a login so that you can use the original apps on the Apple TV?
From what I understand, you sign up through Amazon, and use the respective app or website to watch.

Amazon is just acting as the middle person by handling the subscription payment (and probably getting a cut of it). The subscription is controlled through your Prime account, so if you want to cancel, you cancel through Prime video channel manager, not with the service.
